  • Genetics of scapula and pelvis development: An evolutionary perspective. [Journal Article]
    Curr Top Dev Biol 2019; 132:311-349Young M, Selleri L, Capellini TD
  • In tetrapods, the scapular and pelvic girdles perform the important function of anchoring the limbs to the trunk of the body and facilitating the movement of each appendage. This shared function, however, is one of relatively few similarities between the scapula and pelvis, which have significantly different morphologies, evolutionary histories, embryonic origins, and underlying genetic pathways.…
  • Body wall development in lamprey and a new perspective on the origin of vertebrate paired fins. [Journal Article]
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2013; 110(29):11899-904Tulenko FJ, McCauley DW, … Burke AC
  • Classical hypotheses regarding the evolutionary origin of paired appendages propose transformation of precursor structures (gill arches and lateral fin folds) into paired fins. During development, gnathostome paired appendages form as outgrowths of body wall somatopleure, a tissue composed of somatic lateral plate mesoderm (LPM) and overlying ectoderm. In amniotes, LPM contributes connective tiss…
  • Limb bud colonization by somite-derived angioblasts is a crucial step for myoblast emigration. [Journal Article]
    Development 2012; 139(2):277-87Yvernogeau L, Auda-Boucher G, Fontaine-Perus J
  • We have combined the use of mouse genetic strains and the mouse-into-chicken chimera system to determine precisely the sequence of forelimb colonization by presomitic mesoderm (PSM)-derived myoblasts and angioblasts, and the possible role of this latter cell type in myoblast guidance. By creating a new Flk1/Pax3 double reporter mouse line, we have established the precise timetable for angioblast …
  • Lumbar hernia: surgical anatomy, embryology, and technique of repair. [Review]
    Am Surg 2009; 75(3):202-7Stamatiou D, Skandalakis JE, … Mirilas P
  • Lumbar hernia is the protrusion of intraperitoneal or extraperitoneal contents through a defect of the posterolateral abdominal wall. Barbette was the first, in 1672, to suggest the existence of lumbar hernias. The first case was reported by Garangeot in 1731. Petit and Grynfeltt delineated the boundaries of the inferior and superior lumbar triangles in 1783 and 1866, respectively. These two anat…
  • Expression pattern of the homeodomain transcription factor Pitx2 during muscle development. [Journal Article]
    Gene Expr Patterns 2007; 7(4):441-51Shih HP, Gross MK, Kioussi C
  • Late-stage Pitx2(+/LacZ) mouse embryos stained with x-gal appeared to have blue muscles, suggesting that Pitx2 expression specifically marks some phase of the myogenic progression or muscle anlagen formation. Detailed temporal and spatial analyses were undertaken to determine the extent and onset of Pitx2 expression in muscle. Pitx2 was specifically expressed in the vast majority of muscles of th…
  • Regulation of scapula development. [Review]
    Anat Embryol (Berl) 2006; 211 Suppl 1:65-71Huang R, Christ B, Patel K
  • The scapula is a component of the shoulder girdle. Its structure has changed greatly during evolution. For example, in humans it is a large quite flat triangular bone whereas in chicks it is a long blade like structure. In this review we describe the mechanisms that control the formation of the scapula. To assimilate our understanding regarding the development of the scapula blade we start by add…
